Glogster Video Tutorial

Glogster is a great tool that students can use to create multimedia collages. I've written about Glogster on a number of occasions in the past (examples here, here, and here). One of Glogster's strongest supporters is Traci Blazosky who created an excellent video tutorial that walks teachers through the process of using Glogster. Watch the video below.

Applications for Education
Glogster is a great tool for having students create collages of information they've found and or created. Students can combine videos, images, text, and audio into one online display that can stand alone or be embedded into a blog, website, or wiki. This fall some of my Civics students will be creating Glogster "glogs" about the candidates running for political office this fall.
